Almacen Gallery presents a group exhibition Erlking.
Halil Balabin, Ronit Citri, Ronit Goldschmidt, Netta Laufer, Israel Rabinovitz, Yael Sloma
Curator: Yael Sloma
The exhibition Erlking stems from two elements with extensive mythologies – the forest and fire – and attempts to examine how the link between them to the murder of Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdeir is reflected in contemporary Israeli art.
In the summer of 2014, in revenge for the kidnapping and murder of three Jewish boys – Gilad Sha’er, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrah – by Hamas, Jewish extremists abducted Abu Khdeir from his neighborhood, took him to the Jerusalem Forest, where they burned him to death.
